The Guapamacátaro Interdisciplinary Residency in Art and Ecology

Application Deadline

Nov 1 2011

The program was founded in 2006 by Mexican artist and curator Alicia Marván,
as an extension of her artistic practice. Its conceptual and artistic framework includes ecology in its broad sense, not limited to its common association with the preservation of the natural environment. All components of the local ecosystem (human, natural and artificial) and their relationship to each other are subject of inquiry, creativity and growth.

Up to 10 people are selected from a mix of the following disciplines:

- Performing Arts (Music, Dance, Performance, Theater, Puppetry, etc)
- Visual Arts (Painting, Drawing, Mixed-Media, Photography, Film/Video, etc)
- Sculpture and Installation
- Design and Architecture
- Humanities and Social Sciences (Anthropology, Philosophy, Writing, etc)
- Natural Sciences (Ecology, Hydrology, Biology, Geology, etc)

The Guapamacátaro Interdisciplinary Residency in Art and Ecology is a site-based and community-oriented program for artists from different disciplines, scientists, educators and activists, aimed at fostering socially and ecologically-conscious cultural development in the area where the Guapamacátaro hacienda is located (Michoacán, Mexico).
